Hi, I'd like to know a native speaker's opinion; is it possible to use "how" in this sentence to have the same meaning of "to be like" or "to look like"
sentence: I don't know HOW I want my ideal partner
could it have the same meaning as :
I don't know what my ideal partner is /look like
Thanks a lot .Rip.
"How" I want someone sounds like your a cannibal. Breaded and fried, perhaps.
What I want him/her to be like. What I want him/her to look like. What sort of person I want.
If you say "be" like, then you mean more about the personality and character, and not so much looks.
